It is. The retail shops close Christmas Day, New Years Day, 3 Kings and May 1st but the bars, leisure outlets and the restaurants all stay open.

Hi everyone, sorry if I missed the answer in the thread, however I'm flying out on Boxing Day (Monday 26th) and I'm wondering if the supermarkets will be open on our arrival?
We don't land until late afternoon.
Thanks,
Roy
